Have you ever wondered what is the deal with a lot of cowboys and their huge belt buckles? I found out a long time ago that they treat their buckle like a trophy. Belt buckles seem to be a cowboy resume because often you find their name tag and family history all engraved onto a silver or gold plated metal. I think it's pretty neat how they wear their custom-made belt buckles with pride.
Well, I'm not a cowgirl, but I like western style accessories to bring a roughed touch to some of my ensembles. Today, I'm showing you a look which starting point was from a western belt buckle. I've seen this belt buckle shining in between my husband's belts for a few years. I've been wanting to give it a good use but unfortunately, I didn't have a belt of my size with a removable buckle. I finally found the right belt at a local vintage store and luckily with the right width for my husband's buckle.
White is the perfect canvas to show off any shiny accessory. Therefore, I didn't hesitate on wearing a total-white look.
I decided to match this buckle (gotta love the two rubies) with my liberty antique pendant and gold hoop earrings to keep harmony in between my accessories. Now, should he engrave this buckle?
